About Brio

Brio College Prep is a charter high school powered by Ednovate in partnership with the University of Southern California. Our mission is to empower our students to use their college degrees and careers to make a positive multigenerational change. We will provide students and families a safe and nurturing school culture that has high expectations and that delivers a rigorous and personalized college prep experience. Our innovative classroom approach allows students to learn at their own pace through a curriculum that uses online lessons, digital platforms, small-group learning, coaching and one-on-one instruction. Along with personalizing the learning experience, we care about instilling a deep sense of purpose in our students and developing valuable relationships in our school community. Redesigning the high school experience requires that staff members reflect constantly on the impact of their actions and collaborate to continuously improve their practice. We are currently located at 700 Wilshire Blvd #400, Los Angeles, CA 90017.

Position Description

The Special Education Student Aide will have two primary functions: serving as the primary one-to-one support for a student with learning differences and supporting the Special Education department as needed. They will also be a critical part of our school's team. In the one-to-one role, the Student Aide will adapt classroom activities, assignments, and/or materials under the direction of the general education and special education teachers to provide access to class activities. They will also be responsible for appropriately managing student behavior, implementing a behavior support plan and behavior strategies as needed.

The Student Aide will confer with the Resource Specialist and other teacher(s) on a regular basis to assist in evaluation of student progress and/or implementation of IEP goals and objectives and assist with student assessments as appropriate. They will also participate in IEP meetings as appropriate, maintain appropriate documentation, records, and reports; and maintain confidentiality of students and families as mandated by district, state and federal regulations.

The Student Aide must embody our core mindsets and be active participants in the staff community. They will be responsible for enforcing our school-wide student code of conduct with 100% consistency along with all school staff. At Brio College Prep, all staff will lead weekly workshops to help students explore topics not covered in any course curricula. Team members will engage in lively debates around planning, student learning outcomes and school culture. They should neither shy away from conflict nor accountability to results as measured through student learning outcomes and strategic plan goals. The responsibilities listed here are not exhaustive. There may be infrequent occasions in which students are not in session that the Student Aide will assist with office or school operation- related responsibilities.
